appartment in Aix -en - Provence

4 of 5
We enjoyed our holiday apartment & the location close to the centre, excellent public transport close by. At the end of our holiday the owner was good enough to take us to the airport in his car. What we didn't like was having to pay £441.99 damage deposit 5 weeks before our holiday this amount came out of our account on 10th June & has just gone back in this week two weeks since we returned, we have also received a £12 non-sterling transaction fee. Why wasn't our card details held just in case we damaged anything, why was there a need to take the money ,its just caused us problems with our bank. In another Owners direct property during the same holiday we were asked for a deposit of 500 euros on arrival. Future Owners Direct users should be aware of these charges.
